Sweet Friendship

Yesterday, day 34 of summer, I spent with my dear friend Renae. The girls and I drove out to visit. Renae’s children adore playing with Sarah. I should have taken a picture of my almost-17-year-old goofing around Renae’s nearly-10-year-old daughter and nearly-8-year-old son (all 3 of them have August birthdays). I think they wore her out pretty well by the end of the day. It used to be the other way around when they were younger!

While the three of them enjoyed play time, Meghan, Renae, Renae’s mom and I went out to lunch. Not to Pickity Place this time, just a spot local to Renae.
When we walked in, I thought this display of after dinner mints was pretty:

We enjoyed our lunch, and at the end, the waitress brought over the tempting dessert tray for us to peruse. Had I been there without Meghan, I would have easily refused the tasty-looking treats; it isn’t my habit to order dessert. But when one’s 19-year-old daughter, who one knows will be disappearing back into her own special world at college in just a few weeks, leans over and looks up at you with her pretty aqua-colored eyes and says, “We could split something…” one has a tendency to cave in! We ordered this:
Super rich dessert

That was a super-rich, incredibly dense piece of chocolate. The waitress called it cake, but it was really more like fudge. Even the two of us sharing could not finish it all.

I’m very happy for the time we spent together yesterday. Renae’s husband took a picture of all of us together – I hope to share it here later if Renae agrees and sends it to me.


  1. How lovely, dear Karma! Of course you couldn’t refuse your dear daughter. I caved in and had three pieces of pie last week. Oh lordy! No pie this week…

    • Awe … darn you are putting a flaw into my foodie logic … I always tell myself “fruit” pies are a healthy choice … they are fruit, right. 😦

      • It’s a good theory, Beary! 😉

    • Thanks Kathy! We all have to live a little – pie, chocolate… 😉

  2. Chocolate! It takes a very strong (crazy) person to turn down a special dessert on a special day when it involves chocolate … 😉
    There are times when we just have to let go and enjoy life.
